Assessment Batteries

The two most common assessments batteries that PECS is requested to conduct are:

  • Comprehensive Psychological Assessment
  • Comprehensive Psychological and Educational Assessment

Both of these standardised assessment batteries are provided at a heavily discounted price when compared to the costs that would be charged according to the APS Recommended Fee Schedule.

Furthermore, rebates are often available from Medicare and Private Health Insurers which further reduces the cost incurred by the patient / client.
